"he gave an impression of deformity without any nameable deformation"- continuous vague description and lack of rationality in this statement may have caused readers as well as characters in the book to be scared/weary of hyde.
look at any moments in the book where there's a fair amount of description- likely there's some pathetic fallacy in there or an element of gothic fiction within it. i can't remember any specific quotes but there's a description that includes something about a chocolate coloured pall. in chapter 8 near the beginning there's description of the night and city as well as utterson's emotions. setting's probably an important element in creating fear in the novel.
you also have the fact that it is not revealed until chapter 9 that jekyll and hyde are the same person- this delay until the reveal of information helps increase tension for the reader as they would've never fully understand the concept of jekyll and hyde till that point. furthermore, the time/organisation of events is not at all coherent in the novel- the last two chapters are letters which contain accounts of events that happened previously, so for example if we as the readers do have any questions they cannot be answered, and we'll never know utterson's response to the letter- it just ends with jekyll unhappily giving up to hyde.

anything could come up to be honest, what exam board are you on? i can really only tell you what was on last year's paper if you're aqa. other exam boards may have uploaded last year's papers around this time. but themes and characters to consider:
jekyll, hyde, lanyon, utterson and maybe enfield
fear, rationality, gender, duality, hypocrisy... i can't think of much else. perhaps other emotions idk.
